Advice on choosing mac mini for Lightroom
May 17, 2013

Hi

My 2009 Intel Core 2 Duo Mac Book Pro is getting a bit slow, especially editing Lightroom with other apps open, so I thought I'd upgrade and give the laptop an easier ride.
I am lucky enough to have a spare mac keyboard, mouse and an old Apple 20" cinema display (1680 x 1050) lying around, and because I am mostly only editing in my spare time, I thought I'd get a mac mini.
I hoped someone could help me choose a model: given that I am currently not interested in editing video, is it worth getting a quad core version and is it necessary to get a RAM upgrade (3rd party or otherwise)? Also is there much difference between the 2012 models and 2011?

Many thanks in advance!
